Thandiwe Newton in Atelier Versace at the “Reminiscence” Los Angeles Premiere: IN or OUT?

Posted on August 18, 2021

The lighting conditions for the L.A. premiere of Reminiscence were not particularly great, going by these shots of Miss Thandiwe doing her best to shimmer. Maybe it’s unfair to submit a frock to IN or OUT judgments when the lighting’s not great – especially if it’s a frock in a tricky color – but we genuinely aren’t sure what we think of this one and we need you to figure it out for us.




We’re not huge fans of fringe dresses; let’s get that bias out on the table. We’re also not feeling that really weird shoulder-to-wrist non-sleeve thing. It’s just interesting enough to make us wonder how it would like on a different garment, but it’s annoying and incongruous attached to a dress that’s part showgirl, part modest swimsuit.

On the other hand – and it is an admittedly really large hand, metaphorically speaking – Mama is SERVING.

So you tell us, kittens. Make the call:
